Fans of Of Mice & Men who were slated to see the final days of the band’s current tour were given some disappointing news; the shows have been cancelled.
Over the weekend, frontman Austin Carlile was admitted into the hospital and was advised by doctors to stay overnight, though there has been no word on what exactly led to Carlile being admitted in the first place.
The band took to Facebook after his admittance to release a statement about the cancellation of the final dates of their tour and how they will make it up to those unfortunate fans.
“Of Mice & Men regrets to announce that the remaining dates of the ‘Full Circle Tour’ will be cancelled. Therefore, tonight’s [Sunday’s] show at Soma in San Diego and Tuesday’s show at El Plaza Condesa in Mexico City will no longer go ahead. Lead singer Austin Carlile was admitted to a hospital yesterday morning and per doctor’s orders has been kept in overnight for evaluation. The band regrets not being able to perform for their fans and hopes to be back in both cities as soon as possible. Refunds for both shows will be available at point of purchase, however Of Mice & Men are planning to reschedule both shows for a later date in the year. We will have more news on this in the coming weeks and tickets holders are welcome to retain their tickets, as they will remain valid for these rescheduled dates.”
In a twist, as pointed out by Loudwire, this isn’t the first time the band has had to cancel tour dates due to Carlile being hospitalized. Last year, the band has to cancel some European stops because Carlile had gotten a neck injury that he never got checked out. It ended up pushing at the back of his heart and due to previous heart issues, he had to remain hospitalized for several days.
The now-cancelled remaining days of the “Full Circle Tour” was in support of the band’s recently released album, Restoring Force: Full Circle, the reissue of 2014’s Restoring Force.
